Cooking up Perfection!  LPISD's Nutrition Department Earns State's Highest Recognition!

La Porte ISD’s School Nutrition Department has accomplished a rare feat by receiving a perfect review for its overall performance by the Texas Department of Agriculture. It is the district’s second perfect comprehensive audit in the past 20 years and one of only seven in the state so far with approximately 360 audits to be conducted by TDA this school year.

School districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program, such as La Porte ISD, are required to undergo a comprehensive review of their operation every three years. The audit primarily focuses on financial management, menu planning, food production including sanitation and food safety, free and reduced meal application processing, and professional development training.   

The perfect score could not have been achieved without a commitment from everyone who wears a Nutrition Department identification badge, especially the nutrition staff at Lomax Junior High, La Porte Junior High, and Heritage Elementary

The department will receive an award of recognition from Texas Department of Agriculture later this spring.

LPISD Receives "Best of the Bunch" Award from the Texas Department of Agriculture!

The La Porte ISD School Nutrition department is committed to serving fresh, local, and delicious foods made and grown in our great state of Texas.  In recognition of these efforts, the Texas Department of Agriculture has awarded La Porte ISD the Best of the Bunch  award for the 2020-2021 school year.   Students have enjoyed eating local and we look forward to continuing and expanding these efforts in the next school year and beyond.  We would like to thank our students, staff, and the La Porte community for helping us support Texas food growers and producers.
